Lyrics

I left my home on an Autumn day

Turned my face to the ocean grey

Shed my life for a chance to be free

Hang onto hope on a treacherous sea

So look back again on that land of mine

To have my heart and beguiled

What lies ahead can't be a mistake

Day by day another Yankee wave

O'er the seas we go

Say fare thee well so long to the world you know

Oh the hell we'll raise

When fortune guides us over furious waves

When fortune guides us over furious waves

They say hope is a fickle thing

But I'd rather hope than face another frozen spring

I'd rather brave the ocean's rage

Than safely starve another day

Devil you know or the devil you don't

A hangman's smile or a pastor's doubts

For hope is a thing we can't afford

I won't leave my luck in the hands of the lord

Over the seas we'll go

Say fare thee well so long to the world we know

Oh the hell we'll raise

When fortune guides us over furious waves

When fortune guides us over furious waves

All I'm brining along with me

Tiny branch of my family tree

All we've lost and all we've known

We'll plant anew and watch it grow

Over the seas we go

Say fare thee well so long to the world you know

Oh the well we'll raise

When fortune guides us over furious waves

When fortune guides us over furious waves

I say o'er the seas we'll go

Say fare the well so long to the world you know

Oh the hell we'll raise

When fortune guides us over furious waves

When fortune guides us over furious waves

When fortune guides us over furious waves

When fortune guides us over furious waves

For every mood
